Profile of the Nike LeBron Witness 3

The third model in the LeBron Witness series sports an aesthetic that is almost identical with that of its predecessors. Instead of the hexagonal diamond traction pattern, the Witness 3 comes with a straight out herringbone traction pattern as a significant change. Added to that, the previous forefoot Zoom pods are replaced with a full-length Air unit for responsiveness. The upper is made of molded micro-mesh which some call textile or knit. The cushioning setup is great but it is nowhere half of what the 16th LeBron James Nike basketball shoes.


Cushion. The responsiveness of the Nike LeBron Witness 3 comes from the Phylon midsole with an encapsulated full-length Air unit. This lightweight cushioning setup delivers great court feel and impact protection.

Traction. The solid outsole rubber of the Nike LeBron Witness 3 comes with a tried-and-true full-length herringbone traction with a story to tell. The distinct grooves in the outsole is a landmark in Ohio where LeBron James used to reside. The thick grooves are designed for the shoe to withstand outdoor courts and resist dust.


Length and Width. The Nike LeBron Witness 3 is reported to run narrow. Wearers with normal feet can achieve a comfortable fit by making adjustments to the shoe laces.

Lockdown. To keep the foot in place, the LeBron Witness 3 utilizes a traditional lacing system. For a comfortable ankle hug, the inner walls of the shoe have foams.


The upper of the Nike LeBron Witness 3 is built with molded micro-mesh in a hexagonal pattern. The textile upper delivers breathability, breathability, and comfort all day long. The eyelets are coated with thermo polyurethane to keep it durable.


The Nike LeBron Witness 3 comes in a low-top silhouette, and it prominently features the Nike Swoosh logos on the sides. The heel comes with a tab similar to that of the LeBron 15. To showcase the technology used in the midsole, the outsole has a carved out window and an “AIR” callout. ‘LLTK,’ which means Long Live The King, is imprinted onto the midsole. LeBron James’s famous lion logo is seen on the tongue.

Special Colorways of the Nike LeBron Witness 3

The Nike LeBron Witness 3 sees two basic colorways upon its recent release–Black/University Red and the Black/White. Unlike the previous Witness models, the Witness 3 has a special colorway that pays tribute to the legendary player’s roots.

Nike LeBron Witness 3 “I Promise”

LeBron James currently resides in Los Angeles but his love for his hometown Akron, OH never fades. The Akron Public Schools and LeBron James Family Foundation teamed up to create a new school for students who need it most. The school opened its doors in September 2018 and is expected to accommodate 1st to 8th graders by 2022.

LeBron James dedicates the “I Promise” colorway to the school by implementing their official colors into the shoe. The LeBron Witness 3 is a black basketball shoe that comes with a cool grey chrome Swoosh logo and a camouflage mix of volt, red, and blue in the outsole.
